Install a Ductless HVAC System for Improved Efficiency

If one of your biggest fears of the coming winter is an outrageous heating bill, you should look into changing your HVAC system to a more efficient option. While West Columbia, South Carolina, isn’t the coldest part of the United States, it does get cold for a few months and you’ll be using your heat more often. Install a ductless HVAC system for energy and money savings year-round.

Retire Your Ductwork

The ductless mini-split system doesn’t use ducts like older, conventional HVAC systems. With one outdoor unit and up to eight indoor units, the ductless system is installed directly into the room you’re heating or cooling. While traditional ducts seem to be foolproof, the material has the potential to tear and rip over time. Debris can accumulate and cause damage, allowing more into your home than you’d like. Retiring your ductwork will save you lost heat or cool air over time, and reduce your energy consumption, resulting in lower utility bills.

Target Your System

Placement of the mini-split ductless unit enables you to target the specific area you want to heat or cool. These versatile units can be mounted to the ceiling, the walls, or installed on the floor of any room. They can be programmed to the comfort level of the room based on its occupants. If your mother-in-law prefers her room to be cooler than the rest of the house, simply set the temperature for her preference, avoiding potential arguments or discomfort. Keeping that area at a stable temperature reduces energy usage required to heat and cool throughout the day.

Comfort in All Seasons

Ductless HVAC systems feature an air conditioning component, as well as a heat pump for cooler weather. Switching between the two is as simple as flipping a switch. Once you’re ready to set the heat, just make the adjustment on your unit and your home will be warm and cozy in no time.

It’s time to re-evaluate your current HVAC system. Give us a call at Krantz Kooling and Heating at (803) 672-3224 to set an appointment with our service professionals.
